The master of Italian Baroque music is indisputably Antonio Vivaldi. Throughout his life, he composed hundreds of works, and is remembered perhaps second only to J.S. Bach, ranking as one of the most popular composers of all time. His oeuvre crosses an extraordinarily wide range, from instrumental compositions of all types to sacred cantatas and operatic works, a vast number of which are presented in this comprehensive box set.Vivaldi composed a large part of his works while working at the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice, where he was employed as a composer, teacher and violinist. The aim of the foundation was to provide an education and home for orphaned children. Vivaldi remained in the post on and off for over 30 years, and was under obligation to compose a new cantata for every feast day. His reputation, however, grew thanks to his post, adding up to over 140 in his absence. His operatic works grew vastly in number, instrumental skills rather than his compositions at first; as a violinist, he was known for his extraordinary cadenzas and virtuosic playing style. He became better known as a composer when Dutch publisher Etienne Roger brought out Lestro armonico in 1711, a hugely popular collection of 12 violin concertos, included on this release in full. J.S. Bach was particularly enthused by the manuscript, and his transcriptions for organ have gained popularity on their own merit his version is also to be found in this edition, a fascinating point of comparison, and a testament to Vivaldis reputation in his lifetime.During the 1720s and 30s, Vivaldi began to travel widely, while still sending compositionsto the Pietà in Venice when required: despite being unable to teach, he was clearly still a major asset, as he was asked to send two concertos a month by and he began working closely with soprano Anna Girò, who was rumoured to be his mistress. Vivaldi died in Vienna, and, incredibly for such a famous and wealthy man, was given a paupers burial. His last few months in Vienna had been frustratingly lacking in work, as concert houses were closed to mourn the death of Charles VI; however, his last opera was eventually staged posthumously there in 1742.Vivaldi was a divisive figure during his lifetime, well known for being vain and conceited. His vanity, though, is certainly deserved; we are left with the overwhelming evidence. More than 50 operas (of which 21 survived), 500 concertos and 90 sonatas are no mean feat for a man who by all accounts was also a superb teacher and virtuosic violinist. This release draws attention to the diversity of his oeuvre, starting with his instrumental music and moving on to feature his sacred cantatas and operas. It is the most comprehensive edition of Vivaldis music yet, bringing together 66 CDs showcasing hundreds of different performers and ensembles, many of them performing on period instruments as they strive to recreate the sound of the composers timbre through their researchled contemporaneous playing styles.

An exact contemporary of Bach, George Frideric Handel was one of the most important composers of the Baroque era, carving out a career for himself which was equally as impressive as his fellow countryman's.

Born in Halle, Germany, to parents who were initially opposed to his devotion to music, Handel soon moved from his hometown to the great operatic centre of Hamburg. The opportunity to meet people from around Europe led to a rapid development of his skills, and, influenced by the Italian style that was gathering pace around him, the composer took the opportunity to travel to Italy, staging La Resurrezione in Rome in 1708. Handel's reputation soon picked up, and in 1710 he became Kapellmeister to the Elector of Hannover, Prince George, who would soon become King George I of England. The connection with England had been established, and Handel moved there permanently in 1714, helping to found the Royal Academy of Music five years later. When the new Covent Garden Theatre was established in 1736, Handel celebrated the opening night with a performance of Alexander's Feast.

Following his operatic success, the composer turned to oratorios, starting with the biblical Saul and Israel in Egypt, and premiering Messiah in Dublin in 1742. The next year, despite suffering paralysis in his hand, he completed Samson and the Dettingen Te Deum, with Semele appearing in February 1744. Five years later came one of his most popular works, Music for the Royal Fireworks; up to 12,000 people attended the first performance, an indication of just how popular the composer was in his own lifetime. After staging a performance of Messiah to benefit the Foundling Hospital in 1749, Handel was made a governor, beginning a relationship with the institution that would last the rest of his life.

Image 58CD-BOX: Brahms Complete Edition
Neville Cardus wrote in 1927 - just 30 years after Brahms's death - that he could 'think of no composer whose future is safer and surer than Brahms's; everyone can find a point of contact.' Those points of contact are inevitably multifarious. Wuthering Heights (published in 1847) is treasured at large as a love story despite containing nothing that most of us would recognise as love but instead presenting to us the appalling consequences of ungovernable passion. Such passion is not such much buried beneath the surface of Brahms's music as transmuted into dramas without words. André Gide made the nice distinction between Wagner where 'each emotion is full of notes', and Chopin where 'each note is full of emotion'; Brahms is with Chopin. The symphonies may defend the old ways of doing things against Wagner's seductive translation of human relationships into musical dramas, but they are still 'brimful of vigour, drama and a driving passion' (Sir John Eliot Gardiner). We are challenged by both Bronte and Brahms to answer why such passion, far removed from quotidian life, so holds us in its thrall. Not for nothing could Arnold Schoenberg align himself with the golden thread of German music by writing extensively of 'Brahms the Progressive' 50 years after the members of Brahms's choir in Vienna complained that he programmed too much old music.

This reference edition is a worthy complement to the superb complete or almost-complete sets on Brilliant Classics of Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and more, with all Brahms's major works and very many more obscure ones, in performances by renowned musicians that have often received glowing reviews when first issued. It's another unmissable set from Brilliant.

Born in 1681, Georg Philip Telemann would inevitably suffer from comparisons with one of the towering figures of western Classical music, born just four years later: Johann Sebastian Bach. Although after his death Telemann may have been constantly cast into the Leipzig composer's shadow, during his lifetime he was exalted as Bach's equal and was considered one of the greatest German composers of the early 18th century. Certainly, the size of his output compares very favourably with Bach's Telemann was also a highly productive composer, writing over 3,000 works during his lifetime (although not all have survived). Despite his popularity falling away in the 19th century, today Telemann is almost as highly regarded as he was in his own lifetime ¬- the large number of new recordings on this edition pays tribute to the flurry of interest that has grown around the composer Telemann over the past 30 years.After starting his career in Leipzig, Telemann became Kapellmeister in Sorau (now Zary in Poland), where by his own estimation he wrote over 200 overtures, imbued with the Polish and French influences of the court that surrounded him. The cornerstone of his output, many of these diverse overtures make up a large part of this disc. Telemann then moved first to Eisenach, in central Germany, followed by Frankfurt, his fame steadily increasing along with his output. Among his new compositions were church cantatas, psalms and other sacred works, as well as instrumental music he became known for his concertos in the French style, which he valued above the Italian style that was more popular at the time. It was in Frankfurt that he began to write concertos for various different instruments, many of which are to be found in this edition.In 1721, he moved to Hamburg, where - apart from extended trips abroad - he would remain for the rest of his life. At first he enjoyed a stormy relationship with the city although he was employed by the church, several officials complained that his secular works invited lasciviousness, and called for them to be banned. He was also forced to contend with publishing problems, as he fought for the right to choose his own publisher. Eventually, he threatened to leave the city for Leipzig, where he was offered the position of Kapellmeister (later taken by Bach) although he turned the post down, he used the incident to negotiate a higher salary, which he spent on more musicians to perform his works.Despite these issues, Telemann's years in Hamburg proved to be the most productive of his career. He became highly involved with the city's intellectual elite, forging relationships with many leading poets who went on to provide the texts for several of his cantatas. He also began publishing his own works, setting up agencies throughout Europe and travelling to Paris in 1737 to halt the flow of unauthorised publications. Taking influence from his surroundings, it was in Paris that he composed his highly popular Nouveaux quatuors (or Paris Quartets), a collection of six suites included in full on this release.Telemann continued to compose up to his death in 1767 many obituaries mourned his passing, but one simply stated that 'his name is his eulogy' - such was the composer's status at the time.Although scholars have attempted to categorise Telemann as a Baroque or early Classical composer, in truth he was sensitive to all styles of the time: every musical innovation of the early 18th century is represented in his works. His highly diverse oeuvre is therefore a pleasure to discover, and these recordings span the entirety of his industrious output.
